Good standard hotel. Very clean and modern and convenient being walking distance from the airport. A bit expensive in dry season $250-$280 but decent value in the wet. Good value if you can get it for around $150 as we did. The Chinese restaurant is a favourite which is why we pick the hotel over the resort (and I think... More

I stopped here one night in 2012. I found check in easy and the reception staff helpful if a little laid back. Ate at the Chinese restaurant which is part of the complex, pretty good meal. Breakfast was OK, not brilliant. The curtesy bus back to the airport was good and on time.

We had a room a breakfast booked for Sunday 7th of Sept I called the hotel and they advised me to call Wotif where I booked the room. After talking to Wotif they advised me Rydges would not allow a change of date due to not giving 24 hours notice. I tried to explain but got told to bad this... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this place. We stay here regularly when in Darwin and cannot fault it. The staff are helpful, the rooms are spacious and the location is great, even more so when flying in or out of Darwin. My only issue is that in the dry season the price can get extremely high.

This hotel was easy to get to, helpful staff, clean rooms and great, efficient pick up service. We were in transit, so very convenient for us as a family. Will stay again if the need arises. We had children and infants with us, and they wee accommodated for us accordingly.

Recently my wife and I had 8 hours between flights at Darwin airport. On the advice from a man we met in the airport, we asked at the Rydges Darwin Airport Hotel whether we could while away the time there. They were wonderful. They looked after our bags while we had drinks by the pool and ate dinner in the... More

Stayed for 2 nights for business. The Reception staff are helpful and polite. Room was clean, bathroom was ok, just a normal hotel room without any frills. The room has a small fridge but it only had milk for tea or coffee, which are supplied. There is a bottle shop approximately 2 kilometres from the hotel. The Chinese restaurant on... More

Really great place to stay. Very reasonably priced. Clean, comfortable and accessible. I stayed in a dorm (7 beds) and was pleasantly surprised. There are two bathrooms in the dorm room, and a curtain either side of the bed for privacy. There's a fridge in the room, a table and several chairs if you need to work, and ironing board... More
